A family of five was rescued after the Upper Taum Sauk Lake Dam failed, the Reynolds County Sheriff's Department said. Conditions along the Black River were considered dangerous, the National Weather Service said. The dam is in the Ozarks, about 100 miles southeast of St. Louis.

Probably a bunch of rednecks were using it as a backstop and wore a hole in it.

Halliburton's Weather/Levee/Dam Busting Machine did it. I should know. I designed it in my uber secret evil lab located deep in the catacombs under the White House. Oops, now I have to move again! Dammit.

There was no dam breech.

Be assured. The dam is safe, protected.

No I am not scared, and neither should you be!

Fox News, they always depend on a method what I call ... stupid, silly. All I ask is check yourself. Do not in fact repeat their lies.

The dam has destroyed 2 tanks, fighter planes, 2 helicopters and their shovels - The dam has driven them back.

I triple guarantee you, there is no dam breech in Lesterville, Missouri. Or Baghdad.

I went to the dam to get some dam water.
The dam man told me I couldn't have any dam water.
So I told the dam man to keep his dam water!

What I'd like to know is, who decided this was a good design for a reservoir?

The power company, that's who. Water is pumped into the reservoir during off peak usage, then used to supplement peak power demand.

Now then, don't nobody start dissing the highest mountain in Missouri (we're already sufficiently embarrassed).


ETA: This isn't funny, the on site supervisor at Johnson Shut-ins State Park plus his family were missing this morning. Their home was just a little upstream from the power plant tailrace. The building is gone, according to rescuers from Lesterville.
